I liked the sound of For Your Eyes Only (a title the author tells me she o ...

Forever In Your Service

“A lavish party at a country estate, men in dinner suits, women in finery, fine wine, fine art, fine music, fine murder, and a little dog – it all feels so very Agatha Christie.” Says Mae Valentine, who doesn’t seem able to perform her duties as butler these days without ending up embroiled ...
